It can be difficult for edentulous mandibulectomy patient to achieve proper retention, support by conventional full denture. In that case,
the overdenture using implantation can improve the retention, stability. Defect of alveolar ridge, the movable tissue remaining on the
defect side, mandiular deviation, abnormal movement are adversely affected by radical mandibular surgery. An understanding of postsurgical
anatomy and physiology is an obvious prerequisite to the development of new prosthetic procedures for mandibulectomy
patients. The implant-retained overdenture can improve the retention and rigidity of the denture by selecting the suitable attachment.
